Burpees


Warmup:

5 minute Row: 856 meters

Workout:

30 Burpees* for time: 4:11

Should have used a sun dial instead of a stop watch.  Those sucked and left me gasping!!

*Burpees as performed:

  • Stand with your feet at hip-width.
  • Drop straight down onto your hands and kick your feet straight back (into a pushup position).
  • Move immediately into a pushup.
  • As you complete the pushup, immediately jump your feet forward between your hands.
  • Rise straight into a jump.
  • As you land, absorb and drop straight down into another repitition.
  • Repeat for a specified number of reps.
